VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 1 January 1848

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. Our (files of Tasmanian journals extend to the 28th November : Legal.-Sir John L. Pedder, the Chief Justice of Van Diemen's Land, has decided that a Colonial Judge cannot be sued for debt in his own court, as being by law an integral portion of the court in which he pu-siiles, and every judgment reco- vered a jiîdgment of the couit implying the con- currence of all the Judges, which in such a cuse could not be legally given, because one of the Judges wonld thereby be giving judgment against himself. The law was stated to be different in England, because there the Supreme Courts ure not by law required to consist of any particular number of Judges ; and when an action is brought against a Judge in one of these courts, his name does not necessarily appear, and the other Judges are a court without him. This judgment was given on a plea to that eilect laised by Mr. Justice Montagu, the Puisne Judge of the court, who was sued by a person named M' Meehan for the re- cov...

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 1 January 1848

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. The following closes our summary of English news by the Despatch: . In Ireland the harvest is especially plentiful,and .we hope we may rely on the assurances which we receive from several quarters, that the people are generally better clothed and fed at this moment than they have been tor many previous years. Agricultural labour is in demand, partly because of the increased breadth of cultivation ultimately accomplished, although solong delayed last year ¡ partly because of- the extensive emigration to America, the colonies, and England ; and partly tp the dreadful sacrifices of human 'life through starvation, all combining to produce a scarcity of labour. Harvest time is the jperiod of high wages, -and it now seems able-bodied wielders of the sickle í'sécüFe3s. 6d. a day, and good binders (geneially ' - women) 2s!. 9d.

A case of offering to bribe a Commissioner of Crown Lands to extend a run, will, it is said, come before the Melbourne magistracy shortly. - An Oddfellows' Magazine has been started at Geelong. - We learn from the Chronicle, that it is probable Dr. Polding would embark for Sydney in the ship Hudson, which was to leave Liverpool about the end of August, and will be due in Sydney about Christmas. - Acting Assistant-Surgeon Huxley, of H.M.S.

SELECT POETRY. THE HOUSE IN WHICH THE POET WAS BORN. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 1 January 1848

SELECT -------------   POETRY. THE HOUSE IN WHICH THE POET WAS BORN.       A noble mansion sure it was ; All that such could be made ;   Adorn'd with tower and turret high,     And lofty colonnade.       Around it, doubtless, widely spread,     Lay lawns of smoothest green ;   And far beyond, in dense array,   Deep, still, green woods are seen. And at the door brave lacqueys stood           In vestments trimmed with gold,   And toward the pile in glittering rows   Proud equipages roll'd.   And there in chamber damask-hung,     And gay with mirrors bright,   The infant bard-the child of song- First woke to life and light. Was it not so? Shake not thy head, &amp...

What if the lark does carol in the sky, Soaring beyond the sight to find him out Wherefore am 1 to rise to such a fly ? I'm not a trout ! Talk not to me of bees and such like hums, They smell of sweet herbs at the morning piime Only lie long enough, and bed becomes A bed of time.

Right beautiful the dewy meads appear, Besprinkled by the rosy fingered girl ; What, then, if I prefer my pillow beer To early purl ? My stomach is not ruled by other men's, And grumbling for a reason, quaintly begs, Wherefore should master rise before the hens Haye laid their eggs P Why from a comfortable pillow start, To see faint flushes in the east awaken ; A fig, say I, for an...

CLEVELAND POINT AND WIDE BAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 1 January 1848

CLEVELANd1>0INT AND WIDE BAY. 1 e: When Moreton Bay was first thrown open to the public, the graziers became pos- sessed in abundance of the most important of their wants-rich pasturage, good water, and river navigation for seventy miles. The magnificent harbour of More- ton Bay yielded also a secure anchorage for the largest ships at the " White Buoy," off the mouth of the river and distant only ?fifteen miles from Brisbane : so that no- thing seemed more desirable and con- venient than that the wools should be shipped at this port direct for England. It was also suggested, that by means of a dredging machine the channel of the Brisbane could be sufficiently deepened to admit first class vessels, so soon as the in- crease in our commerce should justify the necessary outlay. But discontent in some persons, and a spirit of enterprise in others, at length created a wish to find something better, in spite of the proverbial caution against travelling farther to fare mnrao A t>nn*A...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. CANNING DOWNS. fFrom our Correspondent.J Since my last communication, the weather has been exceedingly cool, for the time of the year, and no rain has fallen. The country looks well, and shearing is nearly completed throughout the district. At the Police-office, Warwick, on the 21st ult., a ticket-of-leave holder, named Peter O'Hara, in the employ of Messrs. Leslie, was brought before the Magistrates to answer an information which had been filed against him by the Chief Constable for selling spirituous liquors without a license. The first witness examined was Constable M'Cro- hon, who stated that on Monday, the 14th ultimo, the defendant received from him one pound, being the price of two bottles of rum, which was agreed to be delivered to the witness at night. The de- fendant, however, neglected to do so, and refunded the money. The constable further stated that he saw several drunken persons on the premises, and that the defendant was a reputed sly grog sell...

ESSAY ON SCAB IN SHEEP. (From the Launceston Examiner.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 8 January 1848

ESSAY ON SCAB.IN SHEEP. CFrom the Lavncestotí Examiner.J, Among the diseases'«f the skin in sheep, scab stands first in place, both in frequency of occur- rence, and injury tojtHeTwool, flesh, and general constitution of the animal. The same disease, or one very similar, has- been known, for many cen- turies back. It assumes different forms in dif- ferent seasons and in different animals, and there are several kinds of it. The scab in sheep is much like the mange in other animals ; ¡tis most prevalent in the months I of May, June, and July, and early part of the spring. It may be occasioned by a great number ' of causes, such as scanty pasture, mismanagement, ' over-driving, keeping sheep long in yards, dog- ging, &c, Sec, and exposure afterwards to cold and wet weather. Sheep having the scab are very uneasy and restless, scratching themselves with their feet, &c, and nibbling and tearing off" their wool with their teeth, or rubbing themselves ' against any projectin...

THE fE o r 11 o n 33 a ii Courier. SATURDAY, JANUARY 8. 1848. THE SURVEYING EXPEDITION. "H.M.S. Rattlesnake, Capt. Owen Stanley, came to anchor in Yule's Road, Moreton Island, on the 31st ultimo, having been 'as far to the northward as Cape Upstart. Although they searched nearly every nook and ^corner of the coast where water was likely.tobe obtained,they found none. At Percy Island there were indications of fresh water, but the supply was too far inland to be of service to the ship. At Port -Mold there was not the slightest trace, and even the holes dug 'by the natives were found to be dry. The reservoirs at Cape Upstart, where water had invariably .been found before, were also dried up, with the exception of one that was found inland, but this turned out perfectly use- less for watering the vessel, as the road leading to it was so difficult that had the .whole ship's company been -employed scarcely sufficient for one day's consump- tion could have been obtained.

HINTS OF ETIQUETTE.

Mr. Chimbley-Mr. Oustybob. Mr. Dustybob-Mr. Chimbley ; " who will of course wipe their hands on their countenances, and " grapple." If, in the course of a walk, in the company of a friend, you happen to meet, or arc joined by an acquaintance, do not ask him if *' his mother has sold her mangle," for fear he should reply, "Yes; and bought a horgan, and vonts you for the/ monkey." Such retorts being not quite gentle- manly, not very pleasant, and likely to lead to a breach of the peace. A gentleman should not be introduced to a lady without her permission ; and should you be a vender of hearth-stones or cats' meat, and wish to be introduced to some lady of general superinten- dence, called a servant-of-all-work-obtain an in- troduction by means of the " butcher'...
